This offering is for today's SC (rather loosely), yesterday's MMTPT (BINGO for Susie) and Monday's TLC (coloring mediums).
Susie likes frogs, blue and bling (sorry, Jen, I skipped around the BINGO board). Not sure if the Dew Drops are bling. Maybe I'll add a little glitter on the lilies.
Monday's TLC was to choose the coloring medium that is most challenging for you to use. Confession: they're ALL hard for me. It isn't my natural instinct to color. Even as child, I didn't really enjoy it that much. I'd grip the crayon too hard, I'd get mad at myself for going out of the lines, my crayons would not stay sharp. Yes, I was hard on myself. I have worked at coloring a bit more this past year, I've improved, but it will never be a go-to for me. So it didn't matter what I chose to use; I cried all the way through this card. No, I didn't. I cried because I'm not finished with my September Fan Club offerings and they need to be uploaded by Monday. This is my last month creating for the Fan Club and it's been very much fun, I've learned a lot, gotten to know a few folks better, and I've stretched my creativity, I think. Don't worry, it will all get done! It's been an honor!

I cry through all fancy folds. LOL! I love this awesome scene that you've created with the lilies and lily pads. It's fine with me if you skip around the BINGO board, but you're gonna get caught. I totally sent Susie a copy so that she could play along as she gets her cards in the mail! Haha! I feel terrible that I haven't been able to keep up with the Dirty Dozen galleries--they're always so full of amazing creations.

Beautiful card. I am happy that the Sketch Challenge inspired you! I like the frogs on the lily pads. Good for you going outside your comfort zone to practice some coloring. We have enjoyed all your Dirty Girl cards for the Fan Club Challenges; keep on creating & sharing.

What a fabulous card Jean. I love all the elements and how you brought them together. Don't ever worry about colouring outside the lines, just draw a new line (wise words of advice to me from my then 5 year old grand niece). Good luck with your DD creations, wow the time flew!
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
